    Help me on the left hand: UB40, red red wine.

    Db F# D# Ab is the verse.

    So I hit the root with left index, and ring finger hits the higher octave.

    So far so good. But am I missing some obvious fingerings? Because my left hand is going from way up high on the neck (F#), to mid neck (D#), to make this verse. Around and around, up and down - very tiring.

    Is there an easier way?

  2. I'd suggest you do your octaves with the index finger and your pinky finger. much less tiring. About your switching positions I'd say just practice, because in reggae you want a deep boomy sound and if you play those notes on the D strings it will sound thin..
